Sunday, April 21, 1907. - i,HinjEaATUiruAiirriijw' Base Ball and Other Sports LEAGUERS FULL ; VICTIMS HI CLASS B Seed's Roysterers "Rally Readily and Get Over a Winning Score. An agreeable' surprise for you this lime dear readers. Decatur won a gam's and did It in a manner that convinced the couple of hundred fans who were out yesterday that things will look much brighter for us in the Three-I race after the boys have had the opportunity to limber themselves up to the extent that is quite necessary. They were In the game all the time and not single bobble marred thlr good work. Jacksonville of the Iowa state league was the victim and fell prey to the tune of 3 to 0. Only once did the Lunatics have a look-in at home plate and It was so close that the whole row of goose eg UK was missed by less than ft foot. Another time a man got as far as third, but could not wiggle any further. Two others got as far as second. Profit by Error. The Decatur team was out-hit almost two to one. but profited by Jacksonville errors and slow team work. The Lunatics could not . bunch their blngles In sufficient quantities to make them count, while two of the four safe ones gleaned by the locals came In one Inning and each served to score a run, thanks In a measure to slow work on the part of the visitors. The Decatur nien also ran bases as though they meant business and to that fact alone Is due all three of the scores. Ed. Drury llanlon was given his first workout In the box. He went to the lab for the first three Innings and performed very credibly, considering the fact that he has not had much practice. Two hits, a wild pitch and a hit batter was his record, but not a man got beyond second during his administration. Keyen' Work Better. Keyes. who fared so badly at the bands of Milwaukee last Sunday, took the second three Innings and. although his record was the best of the three, it was during his work that the visitors came so near scoring. He saved himself, however, by covering the plate and catching his man after he had come near making a wild pitch with a man on third. Schreiber pitched the last three rounds and was touched up four times. It looked bad for him in spots but he managed to pull out each time. Two of the hits tame in the first inning he twirled, but after two were out. Neither of the three twirlers allowed a man to walk, which is a word in favor of good control for so early in the reason. A kern Looked G?od. But while the good things are being said of the Decatur twirlers, neither of them had anything over Akers, the Jacksonville man, who pitched the entire nine innings. Four singles was the total obtained off him and with the right kind of supp3rt Decatur should have been held to one run. Even the iJecatur players admitted after the game that lie was a tough proposition and it would seem that Manager Frank Belt has a fast man in him. L'p to the sixth inning Decatur did not get anything that looked like a hit, the score In the fourth Inning being due to errors. After Moore had fouled out In the fourth. Tenant hit to Roland at second. After juggling the ball long enough to allow Tennant to reach first, Roland took a peg at his manager Just for the fun of the thing and the ball went v ild. allowing Tennant to retch second. Krebs fouled out and Wagner hit through Roland, allowing Tennant to score. Roland's errors alone were responsible for the run. In the seventh Wagner walked and scored from first on Prout's stinging single to right. Fast- fielding would have held him at third. Prout went to second on the throw to catch Wagner at the plate and scored a rroment later on Long's pretty drive to right renter. The next three men were easy outs. I.uaatlra Had one (h no. The only time the Lunatics had a chance was in ttie fifth. Belt struck out and Hagel hit down the right field foul line for two bases, going to third on Pratt's out at first. Keyes threw a trifle wild on the first ball pitched to Akers and the sphere rolled out of Powell's hands. Hagel thought he saw a chance to score, but Keyes covered the plate and caught his man. Charley Bomar did the umpiring and id fairly well. He gave one of two de- LUNATICS AGAIN TODAY Billy Purtell Will Make His Appearance at Third. Manager Frank Belt and his Lunatics .will play here again this afternoon and will try hard to retrieve t lemselves for the beating received yesterday at the hands of Manager Reeds crowd. They will line up the same as yesterday, except, of course, the pitchers, while the Decatur team should fare better with something more like its regular lineup. Billy Purtell will be seen at his old corner and Krebs will work behind the bat, giving Powell, who has worked two days iraight. a chance to rest a bit. Tomorrow Keokuk comes for two games nd following them the champion Burlington bunch from the Iowa State league. CORRECTED, Clubs Abroad. Cedar Rapids At Home. Dubuque At Home.

Billy had promised faithfully to report last Tuesday and when no word of any kind had been heard from him up to Friday night, the management grew anxious and sent him a message in the form of a request to get here Instanter.

However, if the weather remains good, things will look more promising all around the cir cuit. Make Hotel Business Good.

A clipping from one of the Mobile papers is to the effect that Mike Brey-ette is one of the fastest shortstops ever seen in that city, and that he is setting the Cotton States league afire vith his fast work. ' In the first series he accepted fifteen chances without an error and his work of getting away. from the plate is about as fast as seen in the big leagues. They call him "Rabbit" down there because of his fleetness, and say they wouldn't part with him for anything. Peoria At Home. Bloomlngton At Home. 12S. May 17, 18. lUri.

MILUKIN LOSE IN THE FINAL INNING Hard and Interesting, Game of Ball Goes to Wesleyan, 3 to 2. One of the most Interesting baseball games ever seen on Mllllktn field was witnessed yesterday afternoon between the teams of James Milllkin University and Illinois Wesleyan. Until the ninth inning the score was a tie at 2 and 2; but In the ninth Weslyan managed to squeeze out another run, making the score 3 to 2 and deciding the game. Wesleyan had Its playing clothes on during the entire game, the Methodists having only two errors scored against them. Milllkin on trie other hand seemed to have one of those bad days that strike a team at some time or other and made seven errors during the game. l.oat on WBMfm'i Throw. To Wassem's wild throwing may be attributed the loss of the game. When Wesleyan went to bat In the ninth Inning the score stood 2 to 2. Spald, the first man up. hit to short. Wassem made a clean pick-up and took plenty of time In throwing, but he miss judged and threw over the first baseman's head. On the overthrow Spald went to second. Gardner knocked a grounder to Smith, who threw to third In an effort to catch Spald. but Spald beat the ball. The net man to bat was yilliams, who twice before had fanned the air, and things looked hopeful. But he sent a clean hit over second base and Spald scored the winning run. Spald Was the Star. Pitcher Spald for the visitors was by long odds the star or his team, ut of the five hits off of Smith he got two and out of the three runs he also had two to his credit. He had the Milllkin batters guessing most of the time and they were only able to get three scattered hits. Spald was decidedly off at the start of the game, however, and out of the first four men that faced him he hit three. It was due to this that the first score was made. Moeller was hit and went to first, then stole second. Smith cam to bat and when he hit .ae ball Moeller was nearly to third. The second baseman did not notice Moeller and threw to first to put Smith out. He got Smith, but Moeller scored by a hair's breadth. It was one of the closest and prettiest runs ever seen on the field. Iu the fourth Inning Wlnnans hit to Wassem and Wassem over threw first base, allowing the man to go to second. Spald. the next man up. hit clean. scored Wlnnans and himself went to second. He stole third and on the next hit ball scored the . second run for Wesleyan. In the last half of that same Inning Milllkin tied the score. Hamilton went to first, being hit by a pitched ball. Moeller got a hit, send ing Hamilton to second. Smith sacrificed and advanced both Moeller and Hamilton. Plerson knocked an Infield grounder to secon and Hamilton scored. - - Illtfcla Died Hard. The score -remained a tie until the ninth, both teams playing good, hard hall. After Wesleyan had made the final run In the ninth, the MllliIn fans could hardly contain themselves, so great was the excitement. It was at this time that Spald for the visitors showed the stuff - that was In him. The first two men up sawed. nam ilton walked and then the spectators and Milllkin supporters thought they had a new lease on life. Moeller was the next man up arid every fan held his breath to see what he would do. Two strikes and two balls were called against him. The next ball pitched was right over the plate and Moeller swatted It away out In deep center. immediately a great yell went up from the grand stand but It died away Into a groan the center fielder for Wet leyan had pinched It.

The line-up for the game with Rose Poly will be practi cally the same as that yesterday, with the exception that Moeller will be In the box and Smith will go to center field. tjearens did not show up well In the game yesterday and It Is possible that Davis may take his place In right field. The second team organized yesterday and elected Harry Baxter captain and Lyman Smith manager. They have a good bunch of material to pick from and it Is expected that a pretty fast bunch of players will develop. A schedule will be made out immediately and as many games possible played before the season for university ball closes. W. H. Carey Wins. New York, April 20. W. H.

The leaders In both the big leagues were winners reeterday.- Both the Sox and Cubs figured In decisive victories. It tookslhe Sox six Innings to get sta-tea. but wnen mey oiu i loose there was nothing t It for St. Louis but to take the medicine. Washington gave Philadelphia. a scare in the fifth Inning when they started the run getting by pushing four men In for scores. The Athletics, however. In the four Innings that followed managed to go them one better and won the game. Detroit was easy for Cleveland and New York had no trouble disposing of Boston. ' At Pittsburg the Cubs were four runs to the good at the end of the eighth inning. The Pirates considered It a hopeless case and agreed to stop the game rather than continue In the bitter cold. New York piled up a total of thirteen against Boston's two, and St. Louis made It three straight from Cincinnati. Philadelphia was lucky In beating Brooklyn when they were out-hit more than two to one. Errors did the business. Natloaal League. Club Standing. P. W. U Pet.

After Dinner DUAL ATHLETIC MEET GOi TO TUSCOLA Decatur High School Has Varied Reasons for the -Result. The dual athletic meet between fli Decatur High School and the Tuscola High School resulted in defeat for the Decatur boys, the final score in points being "9 to 60 in favor of Tuscola. There was a large crowd present, most of Tuscola turning out for the meet and a great deal of enthusiasm wa uis- played. The meets heretofore have- always been held at the Greggdale park, but that has now been closed to ail forms of athletics and the boy had to be satisfied with holding the meet in the school yard. A track was made there a few days before the meet with eight laps to the mile,- and being toft was harl on the runners. The 100-yard straightaway was also much "on the bum." About five yards from the fin ish there was a stump In the track around which one of the Decatur boys had to run before finishing, placing him at a disadvantage. The best all-around man for Tus cola was Stevenson, who got eighteen out of the seventy points. The bet men for Decatur were Holmes. Miller and Snyder, each getting one first. The-- Decatur boys in a way lay their defeat to the fact that their weight men were out of condition and that they had no-, running broad jumper. These things they will endeavor to remedy before -the Cadets' tournament- Eleven athletes went from the De catur High School, together with a. number of rooters. Coach Mead went to see that the boys got along all right and had fair treatment. The boys had expected to do some thing in the relay, but Tuscola walked clear away from them. The Summary.
